The Silo, Cape Town

South Africa

There are few hotels lucky enough to be able to maximise on views as The Silo.

With Table Mountain as its backdrop, it is hard to imagine an outlook gets any better – but then as you gaze out from floor to ceiling pillowed windows, you spy the sweeping Atlantic and the buss of the V&A Waterfront, Cape Towns working harbour.

This is one of the latest offerings from Liz Biden, South Africa’s most perfection obsessed independent hoteliers. Her personal touch is evident throughout with decadent bedrooms adorned with splashes of colour and original art from her private collection.

Built in what was Cape Town’s historic grain silo, there’s a glass swimming pool on the roof, direct access to The Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa which lies below the hotel as well a restaurant with 360-degree views and one of the best cocktail bars in town.

View country


At the heart of the V&A Waterfront, The Silo is perfectly positioned to explore Cape Town.
